Indirect criminal contempt consists of willful disobedience of any process or lawful orders made by the court, or resistance to the execution of legal process. [38 Okla. Crim. 313 (Okla. Crim. App. 1927)].
It is distinguished from a direct contempt, which consists of disorderly or insolent behavior committed during the session of the court and in its immediate view and presence.
